    How about our own super spy,huh?How does that sound?Our own James Bond.Espionage genre is a new ground to break for the scriptwriters and filmmakers.What do u guys think?Is it doable or just senseless.I think it should be done.
    The celluloid movie "Critical Assignment" has just paved the way.We now wait for the first filmmaker to delve into this new realm.:D
    My betting money will be on Teco Benson for real to start the ball rolling.

    Its one thing to make a spy movie, its another thing to make it realistic to the Nigerian environment....How do I explain this clearly, like the movie BROAD DAY LIGHT, amazing acting, but the reality wasnt just hitting home.........

    We'll see sha. 2 reasons why I want to be an actress....
    1) So I can get paid to learn Kung fu and kick ass on big screen
    2) So I can be whatever I want to be

    I'll b back with more......:p

    Not impossible, but it will be a hard sell. We have some novelists writing presentable espinonage now, though, and there books could be turned into movies to achieve this - just like Bond, James Bond.

    I always thought myself crazy, but I'd really love to see someone make a movie about a murderer and at the end of the day turn the villian into a victim.....:)

    You'r not crazy. It's all story. If a good writer can put it on paper, it can be shot.

    Twists are usually more difficult to do though...

    Bwhahaha!:D Yo funny,gurl!
    The flick you mentioned was just a fair attempt at action genre.The script did not match the ambition of the project.But with trial and error,they will get there,as long as they don't get discouraged and quit doing action flicks like that.

    I feel you there,good writing is what all this is about.No idea is ridiculous if it is supported by a brilliant script.
